The Secretary, Personnel,
Department of personnel and Training,
Government of India,
North Block, New Delhi. 110 001

             Sub : -(i)  Contribution towards PM CARES FUND .
                          (ii) Delay in issuing orders for grant of additional Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 01.01.2020.

With reference to the proposal for deduction of contribution from salary towards PM CARES FUND, we submit the following.

      Needless to say that the Central Govt Employees organisations , especially Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers , in the past , had stood with the Govt of India and people of our country , during the days of crisis , whether it is war with the neighbouring countries or natural calamities. We are fully aware that the crisis now created due to the Covid-19 pandemic is unprecedented and hence the central Government Employees have to play a major role in overcoming this alarming situation. In fact, some of our departments like Department of Posts, Department of Health and Family Welfare are declared as essential services by the Government and employees are working round the clock in offices and also in the field, inspite of the fact that many of them are not provided with preventive measures as instructed by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

      We have already given a call to the employees to donate liberally, not less than one day's salary, towards the PM CARES Fund. As we are representing the lower rung of employees, mainly non-gazetted employees; it may not be possible to donate more from their take home pay. Inspite of this constraint, if the Government is very particular to deduct more, it may be limited to maximum one more day's salary, thus total two day's salary. If any employee is willing to contribute more, the same may be deducted from their salary after obtaining consent letter.

            Further it may be noted that the Government orders for granting additional DA of 4% to the Central Government Employees and Pensioners w.e.f.01.01.2020 is yet to be issued , even though Cabinet has approved it in March 2020.

It is reported by some print and electronic media that Govt is mooting a proposal to impound DA, which has created uneasiness in the minds of employees and pensioners. It is requested that action may be taken for issuing of DA orders early.

            Concludingly , it is requested to issue strict instructions to all Departments that whenever employees are asked to attend duty , in office or in the field , it should be ensured that all preventive measures as instructed by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is provided to each and every employee , without fail. The death of a Postal employee working in Foreign Post Kolkata due to Covid-19 infection has caused much anxiety among the employees.

   Thanking you in anticipation, 

Yours Sincerely,

 (R.N. Parashar)
Secretary General
 Confederation of CGE&W,
Member Standing Committee & NC-JCM
